Meatloaf is on a strict diet and fitness regime following his collapse on an Edmonton stage June 16.
Speaking with Classic Rock Magazine, Meatloaf (a.k.a. Marvin Lee Aday) said he has lost almost 20 pounds in the last month and plans to lose 15 more by the time he heads to the UK for a promo. He added he wasn’t feeling well prior to the Edmonton gig, and had been drinking litres of Pedialytes to keep himself hydrated and able to perform.
“I knew I was about to go and I didn’t want to just fall and hit… But about half-way down I went completely out, and I didn’t wake up until I got to the hospital,” said Meatloaf on the collapse.
Meatloaf’s Canadian tour finished on June 30 in Calgary.
